iTunes Review

With bassist Scott LaFaro and drummer Paul Motian, Bill Evans developed a piano trio that achieved unprecedented interplay. After LaFaro’s untimely death in mid-1961, Evans suffered from depression before recruiting Chuck Israels (ex–Eric Dolphy, George Russell) in early 1962. Moon Beams, recorded that May and June, was the trio’s debut and features all ballads. The modal Evans original “Re: Person I Knew” finds his playing more assertive, with Israels providing a steady yet nimble presence. “Polka Dots and Moonbeams” is taken at a deliberate, explorative tempo. The standards “I Fall in Love Too Easily” and “It Might as Well Be Spring” are performed with care. Motian’s brushwork is sublime on the former, and Evans and Israels demonstrate a simpatico connection on the latter.

After Great loss of His Former Wood base Player He Re invented this Beautiful Album. Hides in the Shadow of many other fame Albums of Bill Evans Collections.this is very very unique sound setting Rather You wanted to hear this Album in the Any given Evening.Time after times. You will hear Gentle Ocean breeze in distance entirely on the background of this very sexy sound of His artistry ,Truely one of his Best album.


If you are looking into listening to Bill Evans this is a great Album to start with. Many of these songs have found their way on to different Jazz Compilations and may sound familiar to you. The album was written after the accidental death of his Bassist Scott LeFaro and it took a year before Evans was ready to record again. His "new" trio recorded several songs which appeared on this album and "how my heart sings". This album I think is some of his most introspective work, Polka Dot's and Moonbeams, Stairway to the Stars, if you could see me now, and I fall in Love too Easily are some of the better songs off the album.


i prefer waltz for debby, but this album is very nice too. perfect for lying down with headphones. a relaxing album of beautiful, laidback trio jams.
